Winter is still strong in Russia…

IMG0149AIt is snowing like crazy in Moscow right now, it looks like it is sometime in January, but while it was a mild winter, it has been a long winter. Old man Winter just does not want to take a siesta this year…

So I guess this is Old man Winters April Fools joke on us this year…

All I know is that soon, Sveta and I are going to make a trip to the hardware store, then at the store pick up supplies for working on the village home and then off to the village. At least for me…

I think Sveta needs a break from me, like I said it has been a long winter and it is time for me to recoup from living in the big city. I do not do well in the city, whereas Sveta thrives in it. I thrive in the village and by the time I have spent three months there, I am 100% better in health…

I am back to using nitro once a day (mainly at night) due to Variant (Prinzmetal’s) angina and microvascular (smallest vessels) angina attacks. I take a long lasting nitro pill twice a day, but I seem to have become immune to that now and two shots of liquid spray nitro does not even give me a headache anymore. I had broken the need for spray nitro after the last village stay of about 6 months and find it sad that we have to fall apart. maybe getting back there will reverse the nitro thing again…

So I am too grouchy at this point in life, after five months in Moscow and to be honest with you, I would prefer to die in the forest and Russian village than in Moscow, with 15 million people just in the core of the city…

I am going to put in a huge garden this year and hopefully will have a chainsaw pruner to finish cleaning the yard up. Then I am going to cut and stack firewood for the winter. Just maybe Boza and I will stay there all winter this time also, after a few months back in Moscow for the fall season… ???

I am going to post from the village, just like last year and the front page of the blog will have all those posts so that you can keep up on what is happening in a tiny Russian village. Tiny is actually too big of a word, for it looks like only one person lives there anymore and that is sad. I feel inside myself that I need to live there full time and that is what is in my heart and mind…

Sveta loves to visit and play around, but she can only be gone from Moscow so long and I have to accept that. Sveta is a city girl and she has no more comprehension to live permanently in a village, than she would to live in America. It just will not happen…

I am looking forward to seeing what has been done on the monastery and I hope this year to be able to climb to the top and see the world from the tower. I also hope that the same guys are there working on it again for they did a good job and I am really wanting to hear the bell ring again in the bell tower…

I will write more about the village as we get closer to going…
